Splurge on the club lounge. Stayed three nights over a weekend for a holiday and booked a room associated with Priority Club / Ambassador status so do explore the loyalty program prior to booking. The first room was an excellent room but the first room was a smoking room and so undesirable. The second room was an excellent room and not a smoking room. The booking was both points and paid and the paid was a club room and an additional supplement is associated with club access for non club rooms. The price of both the rooms and the club is quite expensive but I would recommend a room with club access or a lesser room with club access supplement. The lesser room has a view of the courtyard. The club has a wonderful view of neighborhood. The club staff are wonderful. The French gentleman in particular was wonderful and greeted each and every guest as if the guest was the one and only guest. Breakfast is quite nice with both continental breakfast and made to order breakfast. The club is all inclusive so food, drinks and Internet are at one set charge.
As noted in this review and endless other reviews, London and the hotels in London are quite expensive. Options do exist to stay in a five star hotel and arrive home with a few £ in your pocket. The prices are 2X or 3X high season for hotels and 2X high season for flights so consider a visit non high season. Winters are miserable, though. The classic room is smaller and without a view but at a discount. The trip from the airport is best suited for less luggage and less expensive options such as the Piccadilly Line. Order an Oyster Card in advance online. The cost from LHR to IC Park Lane is £5 via London Underground or £50-£70 via taxi. Pret A Manger or M&S are ideal for quick food and drink. Harrods food court at closing 50% discounts. And yes club access with the associated food and drink and view.
